This interactive preschool app helped drive brand awareness of the new preschool line extension for Hot Dots education cards. Our goal was to connect the printed card to the then-emerging preschool app market.
Because young children were increasingly spending more time interacting with digital devices, it was important for us to bridge this divide. Our core product was a box of printed cards and we wanted to remain relevant in the eyes of the modern parent.
